Day 3 on the Rust colored Bun...

 Here is some work from today on 
the "un-named Bun"
 Long woolen ears...

 Armature for moveable arms covered in Sophia's lovely cleaned wool.
Ears are attached with needle and thread.
   An articulated spine is inserted into the head.

 Fuzzy face.


Arms are being needle-felted, paws are defined.
 I'll be back tomorrow with more!

    1. Penny, You were my inspiration my friend. Having a collection of your pieces is what got me interested in learning how to work with wool. I love Sophia's wool too! I have so much of it, I am able to stuff everybody and still have the best bits for felting.

    1. I am always interested in the workings of other artists creations. One never realizes the work involved in some projects without going behind the scenes.

  4. He's coming along so well, his realism is charming. The last photo is sort of disturbing because he looks so much like a real rabbit in pieces.

    1. May, I freaked out some people at a show once when they thought the little duckling I had needle-felted was a REAL stuffed ducky...

  6. It's so interesting to see the underpinnings of your work. I had no idea there was such a thing as that spine armature-or whatever it's called....those ears in the first picture made me swoon, they're so cute!!!

    1. Debra, you would not believe some of the nuts, bolts and wiring that goes into some of the large pieces. I have a tool shop in my studio for sure.

  8. I LOVE seeing this creation come to life! Thank you for sharing the progression. I collect rabbits. Not just any rabbit, so I don't have a ton. I have received a few as gifts, but the ones I have chosen for myself spoke to me. More like a whisper, "Please, take me home with you!" ��

    1. Rhonda, I know that something like this really has to speak to it's new mistress....in a whisper, as you say. I watch people handling them at shows and you can see them light up when they find just the right rabbit or mouse.

  9. I love this little peek into your creative process, Jeri--and I visited Penny's blog and fell in love with her finger puppets. I'm thinking I might have enough talent (barely) to create some for my grands. Thankfully, kids are the perfect non-critical audience for a rank beginner!

    1. Roxie, you have more than enough talent and creative spirit to make lots of neat stuff, I've seen many of your creations. Penny has a wonderful sense of humor with her puppets and creatures, doesn't she?!

    2. Yeah, I'm loving Penny's stuff (so glad to have found her)and your day-to-day bunny is the perfect how-to for a newbie.
